NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today TouchCare announces the launch of its health advocacy business, providing a

service and platform that reduces healthcare costs, increases employee productivity, and cuts through the confusion associated with the American healthcare system. TouchCare applies their healthcare expertise and data analytics to gain a deep understanding
of their client's benefits needs to execute a strategy that increases employee engagement in benefits, enables better decision making, improves employee productivity and reduces healthcare costs.

To support the new business, TouchCare has expanded the leadership team in New York City, hiring CEO Rob LaHayne. Mr. LaHayne, an employee benefits executive who spent the past three years building the benefits practice at Namely, brings 12 years of experience developing and deploying benefits solutions for midsize and large employers. Also joining the company are Vice President, Client Success, Codi Gill and Natalie Austin, Marketing Director, a former Virgin Pulse marketing leader.

"TouchCare addresses a real need for a data driven solution that reduces healthcare costs," said Mr. LaHayne. "By helping employers harness their data for better cost containment strategies, TouchCare can lower costs while also giving employees an awesome experience that enables them to be more productive, more knowledgeable, and ultimately healthier."

Linking data, technology, and human touch, TouchCare becomes a strategic partner to employers, driving meaningful member engagement leading to more informed decisions and healthcare savings. Members can contact TouchCare Expert Health Assistants via the web, phone, email or the app, making the service available any time a member has a health benefits concern. TouchCare's mission is to enable better consumerism by solving member benefit problems, reducing unnecessary spending, and avoid over-billing.

"The team at GateHouse Media cherish the partnership we have built with TouchCare and their Expert Health Assistants have worked hard to solve our employees' healthcare issues, offering provider recommendations, addressing billing concerns and booking healthcare appointments," said GateHouse Director, HR Programs, Suzanne England. "It's certainly reduced the burden on HR and the stress that surrounds healthcare. Our employees love TouchCare!" 

TouchCare saves its customers up to 10% on their healthcare costs during the first three years of operations. For an average mid-sized employer with 10,000 employees, that can be over $7 million in annual savings that goes straight to the bottom line.
